Vienna, 1886. The young Sigmund Freud is still a long way from being a globally revered national figure. His peculiar concept of the unconscious and his use of hypnosis draws ridicule and sees him marginalized by the medical establishment. His professional reputation is at stake, as is his engagement to his beloved Martha. He finds distraction by accompanying his friend Arthur Schnitzler to cocaine-fueled nights with Vienna's high society. When this same society is shaken by a series of mysterious murders, Freud enlists the aid of fragile medium Fleur and traumatized war veteran and policeman Alfred Kiss in his bid to expose the masterminds behind the crimes, which are causing a stir - even in the upper echelons of political circles. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Interesting and abstruse mistery
22 March 2020 | by barca_AWSee all my reviews

The first Austrian Netflix show brings you to the Austrian Empire at the end of the 19th century and unfolds a story full of mistery, crime and hypnosis. It often feels like a delirium and delivers raw and brutal scenes I did not really expect. However, the presentation is phenomenal and keeps you interested all the time, even though there are some flaws. The acting is really good throughout the show. Fans of Freud could be disappointed because the historical accuracy is not given. I feel like the show really wanted to show Freud in a new light and therefore show something different. This new concept creates some of the best, but also some of the worst moments of the show. It really tries to be many different things and does not always know what it wants. Therefore this show is definitly not for everyone and you should have an open eye to some of Freuds theories, especially hypnosis. But the abstruse and recondite mix of Conspiracy, personality disorder and crime mistery offers a great view into the abyss of the Austrian Empire and also the Human Mind. 7.5/10
